I was at the show and own the VFTV DVD...
My advice would be not to buy it because after owning it for several years now I have only watched it a couple of times. The show was good for the time period and the Help > Slip > Franklin's and the Stella Blue are exceptional, but sometimes the weird visual effects take away from the music. I have never felt the band held up on video rather well - pretty boring.
Also, Jerry looks like Bozo with the wind in his hair.

And if you have no better thing to spend your money on - how about a donation to your local food bank, urban ministry, or ASPCA.

Just my 2 cents...
